A man has complained about public nudity in connection with the One and Other art exhibit that is currently under way on the fourth plinth in London's Trafalgar Square. The art project allows ordinary citizens the opportunity to take part in this exhibit by climbing up on the plinth for one hour. The participants can do whatever they want as long as no laws are broken.
It is not illegal to appear nude in public in England, as long as it is not lewd.
What makes me scratch my head is that the National Gallery abuts Trafalgar Square and there is plenty of "nudity" in the artwork on display. So the complainer's beef is that this is a live person? What's more beautiful than the human form?
Here's a link to the BBC story. Leave me a comment and let me know: is public nudity obscene if it does not contain lewd or sexual behavior? BEHR HUGS!
